'Most complete game' moves Cosmos closer to title

[NASL REWIND: Week 11] The New York Cosmos are one win away from clinching the fall season championship thanks to a 4-0 win over the Carolina RailHawks -- their biggest win of the season -- on goals by Danny Szetela, Diomar Diaz, Marcos Senna and Alessandro Noselli.

The Cosmos can clinch a berth in Soccer Bowl 2013 against the Atlanta Silverbacks Nov. 9 with a win at home against FC Edmonton next Sunday at Hofstra University.
"It was from the first minute that the team came out with the right attitude, completely dominated the game and they performed exactly the way we asked them to perform -- pressuring, possessing the ball, making the runs, finding the goal early," said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese.  "I would say so far it was the most complete game we have had this season."
The Tampa Bay Rowdies remained in contention for a chance to defend the NASL title they won in 2012 with a 2-1 home win over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers on goals by Lucky Mkosana and Luke Mulholland.

Saturday's results left Tampa Bay and Atlanta, a 3-1 winner over Minnesota United FC, as the only teams with a chance to catch the Cosmos in the fall championship.
